A comfortable and welcoming holiday home with a log burner situated in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Delightful former blacksmith’s forge dating back to the 18th century, featuring the original beams, a canopied open fire and a wrought-iron spiral staircase. Close to the owners’ home, it stands within its own garden down a country lane, within a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Local walking books are provided to help explore the surrounding area and the nearby Malvern Hills. The Three Counties Showground is 5 minutes away and there is also easy access to Malvern itself, Upton on Severn, Eastnor Castle, Ledbury, Tewkesbury and Worcester. It is a short walk to the village green, shops and pub. There are many festivals and tourist attractions held locally throughout the year, but none near enough to spoil the tranquillity of the holiday cottage. Shops ½ mile.

    Our dogs and ourselves were made very welcome and the cottage itself is lovely and cosy. The enclosed garden was a real boon especially as we were blessed with sunshine for much of our week. It is well equipped and is well located for walks and very good local pubs.

    The Forge is a beautiful, cosy but spacious cottage. Di and Geoff have maintained the character of the cottage whilst equipping it with every modern convenience that you could possibly wish for while on holiday. There is great walking right from the door, and with Great Malvern station a short distance away, it was a welcome treat to be able to leave the car at home and travel by train. There are local buses to Worcester and Tewkesbury should you feel the need to go further afield. The local pub serves great food and ales. All in all, a fabulous relaxing stay and we will definitely be returning.

    What an absolutely fabulous place, a gorgeous period cottage in its own fabulous garden. Inside there is everything you could possibly ask for, and then more; more like a home than a holiday cottage. There is so much to do in the area, and then it is lovely to come back to this idyllic cottage and just relax. You will find the most delicious home-made cake waiting! The cottage is warm, quiet, extremely comfortable, spacious and well equipped. Di and Geoff are the perfect hosts and have created a very special place. Lots of local fantastic dining options if you don't want to use the well-equipped kitchen. We will certainly be returning to this real gem.

    Our fourth visit to the comfortable and well equipped cottage. Welcomed as before by the helpful and friendly owners. Local quiet walks and interesting places to visit within easy reach by car. On a quiet road which has only a small amount of traffic morning and evening it made a welcome break away from our home telephone and doorbell!
